lyrics

All our attempts are like filthy rags
Oil-stained from cleaning the messes we’ve made
Blown, dried like leaves scattered far from the tree
We pray for justice, then swallow the key

We see you are angry, we know we’ve done wrong
We’re trying to be better, but have been sick so long
Please hold back your anger and forgive our debt
But don’t make us for forgive our brother just yet
Please don’t make me forgive my brother, not yet

Rend the heavens and come down
Rend the heavens and come down

The mountains will quake and the fault lines will tear
We, like the water, will boil in fear
Shattered like clay tossed away from the hand
The potter will give each piece back to the land. 

We build and we toil to delay the decay
Knowing the sickness will catch use someday
Do you weep for the young we’ve returned to the earth?
How long must we suffer this maddening curse?
God, How long must we sing this unending verse?
